When Artistic Paths Cross!…Gary Bagnato and David Bryan Lile

by David Bryan Lile on July 12th, 2015

Life truly sometimes has a way of coming around full circle!…A few months ago, a mutual friend throughout the years, between Gary Bagnato and I, told me all about Gary’s amazing and interesting painted artworks.

Gary and I have not formally seen each other for about 15 years and we have each taken diverse paths of life. Yet here we are today, fellow artists, endeavoring, each in our own way, to share our artistic inclinations and talents with the world. I with artistic photography and Gary with his intricate hand painted works.

Gary’s website pretty much sums up the raw talent that he possesses…“Gary Bagnato is a New-Age Gothic Van Gogh. That’s a mouthful, but it reflects the broad spectrum of his art.”

No truer words could be penned! Gary takes his deep, elaborate, insightful and sometimes whimsical creations and adorns them with intense color and layers, all from his inner eye.

From an insightful assessment of Gary work…”Mr. Bagnato oscillates between the world of calm, natural scenes, such as “Nature’s Flame” field of tulips, and cabin-neighbor moonlit owl of “Waiting for Night,” to the world of political-religious-social commentary.” Read more from Cuzann Matessa Deihl’s Commentary on Gary’s work

Glimmers of whimsy with “Fairy Princess” to intense landscapes such as “Star Gazer Lillies” to “Dragon Rider” and “Creation of Destruction.” A very wide spectrum of thought and art indeed.

One particular common artistic perspective that has intrigued me, between Gary and I, is that we both use intense, vibrant, otherworld color, to draw out the soul of each of our subject matter, whether it is my energetic artistic photography, or Gary’s spirited hand painted creations. When you get a moment, check out my artistic and personal friend’s work for yourself.
